Women In Need’s annual Glow Run is a Race4Every1! Whether you are an experienced runner, or just run for fun, this is the race for you! All two-leggers and four-leggers are welcome (as long as four-leggers are leashed). Bring the whole family, create a team of co-workers or neighbors; there is plenty of room for everyone!

Why register for the WIN Glow Run? Because 10 million is too large a number for organizations to WIN the race to end domestic violence alone. In the United States, nearly 20 people per minute are experiencing domestic or intimate partner violence. That comes to over 10,000,000 women and men suffering abusive behavior such as physical, sexual, economic, or emotional abuse as well as coercive abuse per year. 

When you register for the WIN Glow Run 5K, you are helping us bring awareness to the hidden secret of domestic violence. Domestic violence bulldozes through every barrier. It does not discriminate against age, gender, sexual orientation, political affiliations, ethnicity, race, religion, or social class. It invades and destroys families in every neighborhood.  

However, when we bring awareness to the plight of families in Hunt, Rockwall, and Rains Counties affected by intimate partner and domestic abuse, the glow of hope will emerge. And it is on the Wings of Hope that we can Run Toward a Safer Tomorrow.

The 2022 Glow Run will include an all-day event with family fun, scrumptious food, costume contests for adults, children, and pets, and includes live entertainment throughout the day.

The fun begins at 10:30 am on October 22, 2022, at Harry Myers Park. This is also the same day as Rockwall Downtown hosts Scare on the Square. Don't worry! There is enough fun for everyone! Start the day at Scare on the Square and finish the day at Harry Myers Park with WIN racing to the finish to end domestic violence. Finish the evening with some good eats from the food truck fest and enjoy tunes from the 70s through current hits as Jackson Crossing closes out the night.

Please join us in the race against domestic violence! #WINglowrun22 #runto

Honor your loved one, friend, or one of the nearly 200 victims of domestic homicide victims in Texas this year. Your custom message will be written on a die-cut cardstock butterfly to be displayed on the Wall of Hope at the two DVAM vigils and the WIN Glow Run & Family Fun Fest in October.

You can also write a message of hope to those who are experiencing domestic violence right now, and to those who have sought safety and refuge in the WIN Shelter. 

Please enter your custom message or name in the Add donation note/comment field. 

Tributes will be displayed in our office and then preserved for next year's Wall of Hope for a continuum of Hope for survivors of domestic violence and honor those who are no longer with us.
